Most of us have discovered this method by accident. We collected a bunch of herbs, put them on a table or counter, then forget they were there for a week or two. We ended up with nicely dried herbs, unless they got moldy or were nibbled on by mice. Still this method does work if you’re willing to except less-then-stellar results. Another easy trick is leaving herbs outside their packaging in a refrigerator; they will often end up crisp, colorful, and flavorful!
